Winter Activities


Inspired by skateboarding, sledding, surfing and skiing, snowboarding was developed in the United States during the 1960’s. This winter activity has grown in popularity over the years and enjoyed by children and adults of all ages.


If you want to take a break from skiing, grab the family and hit the local snow covered hills to experience Vail tubing. Snow tubing provides for an exhilarating seasonal activity as you go downhill at high speeds!


Whether you are a beginner snow bunny or crave knee-deep, fresh powder and moguls, we can handle all of your Vail, Colorado snowboarding and skiing arrangements. We can suggest the best ski slopes and provide you with doorstep pickup and drop-off service, freeing your time for what really matters: carving down the mountain.

Adventure Ridge

 Adventure Ridge  sits at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola. Adventure Ridge offers tubing, ski-biking, kids snowmobile rides, ziplines, and a restaurant. This is a great place for adventure seeking adults and kids alike. Have you ever tried snow shoeing???  Modern day snowshoeing consists of supporters who hike trails and competitors who race! For snowshoe beginners, the sport is very easy to learn.

Dog Sledding

Take in the breathtaking Rocky Mountains by getting pulled in the snow by sled dogs! Dog sledding has been around for thousands of years, commonly used for traveling and hunting.  Call Mountain Mushing for more details.

Ice Skating

Lace up a pair of skates and glide around on a Beaver Creek or Vail ice skating rink! Skating has become a winter favorite among locals and vacationers.  Before you retire to your Vail vacation rental, visit the charming Solaris Rink set in the bustling Solaris Plaza located in Vail Village. Open daily from 1PM to 9:30PM during the winter months, the rink offers affordable rates starting at $5. If you need to rent a pair of skates or a helmet, simply ask when purchasing your tickets!

Snow Mobiling

Colorado back country is the best place to find… you guessed it, snow. Deep powder, magnificent views of the Rocky Mountains, miles and miles of trails, and personal service from our expert snowmobile tour guides. All this only 30 minutes from Vail and Beaver Creek at  Sage Outdoor Adventures private mountain and snowmobile trail system, that is larger than the Vail ski area!

Sleigh Rides

Vail sleigh rides can take your next vacation in The Rockies to an unexpected level of moonlit magic and romance. There’s no wonderland like the Vail Valley for a winter night’s ride complete with food, a fire and other comforts. Invite your friends, family or significant other to join you, then bundle up and prepare for an evening you won’t want to forget!
